Horribly dated? Battlefront itself is based on a UI and graphics going back to The Ardennes Offensive published in 1997.
I'm just sick of fools who rubbish one company whilst portraying others as different.
I am a big fan of nice, fresh, workable graphics but to call PzC "horribly outdated" is just the same crap regurgitated from the fools on the News Group who'd complain about 3 wargames covering the three different campaigns for Kharkov - because the terrain looks all the same.

We could say the above also applies to the latest iteration of John Tillers games such as the Panzer Campaigns series - based upon a UI of the older Campaign Series which were based on the Battleground series, which surfaced around the same time as TAO v1.0.
Ok, now im not going to reply to another one of your posts Adam as your obviously a bit hot headed and cannot take anothers opinion on a computer game. I posted my point of view and i didnt agree with yours. Simple as that.
Being called a fool for my opinion clearly points out your mentality.
Calling PzC graphics and interface "horribly outdated" is not just the same crap regurgitated from another newsgroup. Its a fact. Its an old engine, i didnt say it was a bad game and i even pointed out that some will love its under the hood depth, i just cant bare looking at it anymore, gaming has moved on.
Im not saying BF/BII/BIN are exactly cutting edge, but the graphics actually drew me to the game as much as its other features. And they are a big step forward from TAO v1.0, PzC looks exactly the same as Battlegrounds did 12 years ago. Yeah sure PzC has alot of scenarios, but so did Eastern/Western front and all the old Battleground games (of which i own most of them by the way) which were even at the time, fairly sub standard graphics compared with games like bluebytes battle isle which was again a lot less complex but still engaging (like the DB series, which was the point I was trying to make to GMAIL).
Id like to see JT's games move forward, right now, they are not. BF was a step forward from DB and i highly recommend the game if your looking for something less complex and a little easier to look at.
